Effect & Cause

Always wanted to give it a try I will be honest, I won’t lie So a still nudge worked that day Even in the heat of May
The process was simple enough Just about one or two puff Then you just go with the flow It affects nice and slow
Soon it is common affair What people say, I don’t care The buzz louder than others We two become brothers
The bond goes only way Even though the effect may sway Then it is more about the hand The mind has parted from the band
This is what was told But I am still bold “A long enough break That too I can take”
I do it time and again Believe me, there is no pain But permanence scares me Addiction, not sure, maybe

Us, We & He

A group of friends
Sitting around, in a circle
They chat, laugh, cry together
It is only about those friends, those people
Thoughts, opinions begin to match with time
Connections only seem to grow stronger
Not realising they are connected on a much deeper level
They go with the flow
The once invisible influences now come to the fore
While they can be positive or negative
Just that the latter stick easily, are adapted more readily
While 'he' does not fathom the change
It is sure that something is not the same
The focus, perseverance, determination have all dulled in the background
He probably does not even notice 
It is only people around him that do
Making him understand is tough so we switch to what may have caused it
A short and crisp explanation suffices
'You are only the average of five people closest to you'

Many Barks, All Hollow

As durations thin All ask with a grin Why now it’s shorter? What after you got her?
A simple answer to follow Many barks, but all hollow Only the idea has an appeal The emotion, no seal
You are the perfect one Problems you have none But you could just alter one bit? Then we would be a sure hit
Looks, appeal greatly matter While conversations all scatter I strongly believe in it But mine was different, come sit
Both share the blame But is not a game So losers at both end Different road, same bend
The sky is bright blue And I genuinely love you As soon as it turns a little red Sorry, I want to go to bed

Best Left Unanswered?

Should I ask these questions? What exactly is happiness? Is this what we are really chasing? When do we know we are there?
It is just an internal feeling? Do we just know we are “happy”? Do love, success contribute? Or does it lead to them?
Is it there at the destination? Are we moving towards it? Or we have to move with it? Is it intrinsic to the path?
Are all these questions irrelevant? It is best left unanswered? Do the answers cause the confusion? Or there is light at the end of this tunnel?

A Misunderstood Generation

Multiple affairs before the final draw
Loyalty may be a question mark
"I" more important than "we"
Selfish you may call us to be

Some odd habits, some addictions
But we want to live with them
This is our life, our design
We will still sail through

Yes, we are not the perfect ones
But don't even shy from the truth
Accepting the flaws and mistakes
A widely misunderstood generation

Norms, values, cultures we defy
But also establish new trends
Confident to always make it big
We always want to choose and pick

Craziest developments happening now
Wildest imaginations coming true
It is our minds and visions
That enable all, all of this

Not looking for acceptance
But can't even tolerate objection
We will surely change the face
But in our own way
At our own pace

My Pivot

The start itself is tough
And not because the road is rough
But because there is too much to say
Everything has limitations, even clay

But I will do my best
Put my skills to the real test
Thank you for all the love and care
Otherwise, I would have been bare

You have always held me tight
Given me hope future is bright
Always taught me to stay on the ground
And made sure pests do not hound

The concern in your voice
Leaves me with no choice
But to eat, sleep and rest on time
And drink water with lime :P

Your genuine advice helps me sail
Commit a crime, but out without bail
Even he could not create
Words that would satiate

But thank you again for one and all
For picking me up after every fall
With you as the oxygen of my life
I will win each and every strife

The First Step

Thinking of the time gone by
It did not even wait for a sigh
How could I have done more?
Even thinking makes a sore

I had too much to manage
Still could escape without damage
I think that in itself is a feat
That I could hold on my seat

Cut to this time frame
I am still the same
Development in all spheres is on
So what about the time gone?

Could I have done better?
Should I have become wetter?
Is it because of lack of trying?
I just let it pass, sighing

The inner voice shouts "Yes"
"But I was already living oncess
How could I have done better", I ask
It says "Finalise a task"

Some days of thought
Some time of drought
But then all makes sense
It is no longer dense

The first step is all that matters
The problem around me shatters
With a task at my hand
I sit, but this time to stand
